An SMSF is a super fund where the members are trustees of their own fund.
Running your own super fund gives you:

  • More flexibility and investment choice
  • An alternative to large industry or retail super funds
  • Flexibility to implement tax effective strategies
  • Ability to borrow to purchase property

SMSF benefits

An SMSF can give you greater control and flexibility over your super. That’s because it allows you to gain exposure to assets outside of traditional super investments, including direct investments in real estate, artwork and more. You can also sometimes borrow to buy assets.

Our SMSF team can advise you on navigating the compliance requirements for self-managed super, helping you set up, and maintain your SMSF with a minimum of fuss.
